What We Do
As a member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists, I am qualified to deliver acupuncture as part of your physiotherapy treatment
Sasoros Physiotherapy’s women’s health service is designed to support women through all stages of life: during pregnancy, post-natal, pre and post gynaecological surgery, pre-menopause, post menopause and beyond!
As a specialist women’s health physiotherapist I am experienced in assessing and treating women’s health problems related to obstetrics and gynaecology. Whether it’s pelvic pain, incontinence, prolapse, pelvic floor weakness, perineal trauma from childbirth or simply a desire to take control of health and fitness, women’s health physiotherapy can help.
Specialist treatments I can give for women’s health problems include:
- Manual therapy – release techniques to the pelvic floor
- Bladder re-training
- Exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles
- Provision of electrical muscle stimulators and pelvic floor retraining tools
- Individualised and safe ante-natal Pilates and post-natal ‘return to exercise’ programs
- Assessment and treatment of the separation of the abdominal muscles due to pregnancy or increased weight

How I can help …
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible after an individual has been affected by injury, illness, or developmental impairment. As a qualified Physiotherapist, I am able to offer a variety of treatments.
Physiotherapy could help in treating the following conditions:
- Sports Injuries
- Post surgical treatment
- Lower Back Problems
- General Joint and Muscle Pain
- Arthritic Pain
- Work Related Injuries
- Falls Prevention Exercises
- Pulmonary Rehabilitation
What to expect from your first session
On your first visit, I will undertake a thorough assessment of your physical condition to establish the cause of the problem. This assessment follows a set of specific questions which will allow me to design a treatment plan for you. The plan may include a mixture of physiotherapy techniques as well as specific exercises.
What I aim to do
- Assess and treat pain and dysfunction
- Education and management of own conditions
- Encourage tissue healing by controlling and reducing pain and inflammation
- Restore normal range of motion by integrating the muscular, joint and nervous systems
- Identify and treat problems and reduce the risk of re-occurrence
Sasoros is owned and run by Mona-Liza Khoeses who is also the principal Physiotherapist.

Acupuncture stimulates the nerves under the skin to produce endorphins and oxytocin, known as the ‘happy hormones’. These hormones help to reduce pain, promote sleep, promote relaxation and improve overall well-being.
All of our therapists are members of the AACP (The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists) and integrate evidence based accupuncture into physiotherapy, for the benefit of the patient.
Therapeutic exercise programmes take place under the supervision of experienced physiotherapists and may include mat work, resisted activity with springs and weights and the use of equipment such as the treadmill, cross-trainer and specialised static bicycles.
Clinical Pilates Based Rehabilitation
The aim of Clinical Pilates is to strengthen the core trunk muscles, tone other muscles, provide flexibility, and improve posture, balance and breathing control. It is also used to aid recovery from injuries or after surgery.
Clinical Pilates is incorporated into rehabilitation programmes under the guidance of highly experienced and trained physiotherapists. It includes mat exercises, Swiss ball exercises and exercises on specialist equipment.
As a collaborative part of the recovery process, massage therapy can help create positive change following physical trauma, accident or surgery. It has proven to be beneficial in chronic pain management of neck, shoulder, back or other joint pain.
Joint Mobilisation and Manipulation
The term ‘electro-physical agents’ is made up of a wide range of electrical and physical therapeutic modalities regularly used by physiotherapists such as:
- Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
- Therapeutic ultrasound
- Low level laser
- Neuromuscular electrical stimulation and many more besides
Its important that you help yourself stay fit and healthy through a balanced diet and taking regular exercise. Our Health ZONE has tips and guides to help you get started on leading a healthier life.
